Safeguarding Policy & Practice

The Vicar and Parochial Church Council of St Peter-in-the-Forest, Walthamstow take seriously our responsibility to ensure that our buildings and activities ensure places and processes of safety for all children and vulnerable adults in our community.

We have formally adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church: Safeguarding Policy Statement’.

We follow policies and practices in regard of Safeguarding in line with all those published by the Diocese of Chelmsford and the wider Church of England.  Do please have regard to the suite of information pages published at

Should you have a matter to report which may relate to a potential Safeguarding issue, you are to contact the Parish Safeguarding Representative, Ms Anita Doherty, via the parish email address: [email protected]
